This Order of Precedence chart for the United States Marine Corps (received by the Library in 1991) is used by Marines to determine how decorations are to be worn on a uniform. The list begins with the Congressional Medal of Honor and proceeds to the right. It also explains the devices used on those decorations that may represent information about the number of additional awards of a decoration or number of campaigns or operations served.
So you have made the decision to join the finest fighting in the world, the United States Marine Corps. Male or female, this will be the hardest thing you have thus far faced in your life. I have put together some basic information and suggestions to help you prepare for boot camp.
